Once of those things was paint a pot, with it being my birthday and having nothing else planned, I took this opportunity to tick this one off our bucket list.
I had never been to a paint a pot before so it was all a bit new, but the lady at Razzle Dazzle Pots explained everything to us. First, we each had to choose a piece we wanted to paint, there was so much to choose, everything from animals to plates, bowls to vases, dragons to princesses! Eventually, we made a decision, I chose a vase and my daughter a unicorn.
It turns out that if you chose a blank canvas like a vase it is actually quite difficult to paint, unless you are artistic enough to come up something that is worthy of a place in your home. That said, I think I did quite a good job at creating something at least I am happy with.
My daughters unicorn was as bright and colourful as she is and really captured the essence of being four. I loved how the colours looked dull and lifeless before they were fired, but when we went to pick them up I think we were both surprised at the beautiful bright stripey unicorn that stood before us.
I am really happy with how they turned out and I am really excited to take my son back in the holidays so he can make one too, a great way to make a memory and something you can keep.
We have a few more things to do before she starts school, of which I am sure a few will appear on the blog.
